Batth identifies area where Wolves can gain edge in title race

Danny Batth believes fitness will be key for Wolves over the rest of the season.

Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Danny Batth has told the Birmingham Mail what he feels will be crucial to the side’s promotion hopes this season.

The 24-year-old has stressed the need for himself, and his teammates, to be sensible over their own fitness so they can take advantage when other sides start to show signs of burnout towards the end of the season.

“I just pay close attention to every little bit of detail like food, recovery, sleep, everything really,” he said.

“I think with fitness, it’s important you get to that level and retain it rather than going over the edge and burning out for the rest of the season.”

It’s encouraging Batth, and the club, seem to be on top of a key area, which could make the difference in tense games at the end of the season.

Some sides do exhibit signs of tiredness in final league games and some can take their eye off the ball if they have nothing to play for.

If Wolves manage fitness levels in the best possible way, they can ensure they are fully prepared to give everything in every game until the final seconds of their season.

It’s also significant that he’s the captain and can spread his belief across the rest of the team.

He has a responsibility to be the club’s role model and leader and he can do that in the best possible way along with the other professionals at the club who oversee player fitness levels.
